About the garden

Deep within rural Gloucestershire lies an unexpected treasure and a garden that unites exotic with charm – Sezincote. Inspired by paintings of India, a 200-year-old Mughal palace and formal paradise garden effortlessly blend into 3,500 acres of glorious Cotswold countryside.

With its unusual fusion of Hindu and Muslim architecture and onion-shaped domes, you might notice that Sezincote House resembles the Taj Mahal. You can take a 30-minute tour to view its contrasting Greek Revival interior.

Meanwhile, the 5-acre garden was restored in the 1950s and now consists of meticulously maintained lawns as well as rare plant species. Discover tender plants climbing the walls of the curved conservatory, see Irish Yews stand proudly in the South Garden, follow the route of winding streams edged with bog-loving plants and pass over the Indian bridge embellished with Brahmin bulls. Remember to look out for the striking snake ornament while you’re there.

Unusual house and gardens in an Indian style, not what one would expect in the Cotswolds. The house was closed (as expected in January). We visited to see the gardens which were great even in winter. They are not extensive but are beautifully designed in an Indian style with some lovely unusual plants. We must come back and see the house and gardens in summer.

Was expecting a lovely place with friendly owners like everywhere around in Cotswolds... Unfortunately, while we were just taking a look around (nothing special to see really), we were approached by two old angry men who told us that we were not allowed to be there. When we explained them that we found the place on google maps and it said it’s open on all days, we were given no explanation why it’s not actually open. Then they even made a suggestion that we may have broken trough the gate to make our entry, which was extremely insulting! We didn’t let this to ruin our evening, however I would recommend to avoid at all costs. 💔

Beautiful gardens, including water and wildflowers. Interesting and attractive house. Indian-inspired exterior. Tea and cake in orangery. Lovely views. Also near several other places to visit, and near Moreton in Marsh.

Great place to spend several hours outdoors in some beautiful gardens and if you get the chance to visit inside the house (guided tour which costs extra) you will hear about the history of this quaint house. You might need to book on line, worth checking beforehand.

No information on opening times, so we went to visit as this was our first time in Cotswolds and we were very keen on appreciating the architecture. The owners were really rude and even said “This is not Westfield”, shouting at 3 young ladies. This was a very upsetting event and would not recommend at all.
